Introducing the Wolfram Mechanics of Materials Course Assistant

December 13, 2011 —

Today we are happy to add a new addition to our line of Course Assistants for iOS: the Wolfram Mechanics of Materials Course Assistant. The app was created specifically to aid those taking their first mechanics of materials class.

Wolfram Mechanics of Materials Course Assistant

The app covers topics applicable to mechanics of materials, mechanics of deformable bodies, solid mechanics, and statistics. More specifically, the app can calculate the normal stress on and extensional strain in a body; determine the Young’s modulus, Poisson’s ration, and shear modulus of an object; and search for material properties of alloys, plastics, and woods.

It can even solve for the effects of temperature changes on a member, use Hooke’s law for uniaxial stress and plane stress, and calculate the extensional strain and flexural stress in pure bending beams.

The Wolfram Mechanics of Materials Course Assistant can be found in the iTunes App Store for $4.99. Also, learn more about other Wolfram Course Assistant Apps.


Wow, looks awesome… I just wish I had an iPhone…
